Limonta was founded in 1893 in Costamasnaga, a locality that neighbours with Como and so forms part of an area claiming one of Europe’s longest surviving textile traditions. Initial manufacturing operations were directed at hangings and jacquard cloths, products that at once earned Limonta distinction through the elevated standards of their workmanship.
The early decades of this century were a period of diversification as the company - market-orientated even at this early stage - extended its range to include gobelin tapestries, matelassé fabrics, a variety of jacquard weaves, and velvet. In the process it acquired a general know-how in textile manufacturing craft that is impressive for its breadth and variety and which remains to this day one of its great strengths.
The 1950s saw a significant advance in the scale of operations, driven by a strategy change in favour of enhancing fabric quality through textile finishing processes. The effect was that Limonta won recognition as a company that set standards in the area of specialist fabrics, specially processed or otherwise, for use in widely differing sectors - clothing, leather goods, footwear, and furnishing fabrics. At the same time it retained its skills in processing, modifying, and enhancing textile products without ever impairing their naturally inherent qualities.
The Interior Coverings division has pursued its textile mission in the furnishing fabric sector, and has developed into a firm with extraordinary flexibility in the manufacture of jacquard fabrics thanks to a very advanced textile CAD system and a weave room that has kept well abreast of modern developments. Its stylistic creativity, which is highly sophisticated, makes it a prime partner for leading European textile-design houses.
